Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pancakes

chocolate covered strawberry pancakesOne of my most favorite flavor combinations is chocolate and strawberry. A local chocolate shop, The Chocolate Bar, has the best ice cream. And my favorite flavor is Sno-Berry, which is vanilla ice cream with chocolate covered strawberries mixed in.  My two most favorite pancakes are chocolate chip or strawberry.  So I thought, why not combine the two?  These pancakes are so good they don't even need syrup.  Miss F just eats them straight up.  This recipe makes about 8 to 10 pancakes if you use a standard size ice cream disher to scoop them on the griddle.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pancakes

1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup chocolate chips
¼ cup sliced strawberries
shortening (for cooking)

Whisk the egg in a large bowl, add the buttermilk and mix well. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and strawberries. Heat the griddle over medium heat. Using a paper towel, spread shortening over the griddle. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the griddle (an ice cream disher works great for this). Cook on the first side until bubbles that form start to pop. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is gone.

One of my favorite combinations. Healthier than my other one: a chocolate bar used as a spoon in my tub of peanut butter, then eating the spoon and the scoop. But it's so good.
I love pancakes, I need to try this!
